Kanye West is wading into Justin Bieber territory.

Like the 16-year-old pop star who made waves after recently sharing his anti-abortion stance, Ye weighed-in against what he called "gold-digging" women who undergo the procedure.

“An abortion can cost a ballin’ n--ga up to 50gs maybe a 100. Gold diggin’ b-----s be getting pregnant on purpose. #STRAPUP my n--gas!” West tweeted Wednesday.

After getting a few angry Twitter replies (and a few “true dats”), the 33-year-old rapper clarified that his controversial comment wasn’t based on personal experience.

“It ain’t happen to me but I know people,” he added.

One person who responded negatively to West’s profanity-filled 133 characters was singer Lily Allen, who has had two miscarriages in three years.

“Never has a tweet put me in such a bad mood. This is wrong on so many levels,” the 25-year-old Brit wrote on Twitter.

Allen told a British radio show that having kids “is ultimately my main goal in life and more of a priority than flying around the world jumping up and down on stage singing songs,” according to People.
